Song And Name Information

13 Please see "Thirteen" entry.
4p The symbols on the cover of the album were taken from the alphabet of a secret tribunal group from Medieval Germany called the Vehmgericht. They spell out the word "Danzig." In an interview on Twec.Com on 01/27/2000, Glenn referred to them as "Zehmic runes." The entire alphabet is illustrated in Nigel Pennick's "Magical Alphabets" book, published by Samuel Wesier, Inc in 1992. The following information on the album title was supplied by American Recordings in 1994:
"The Four P movement is an alleged Satanic cult operating throughout the United States. An offshoot of the notorious Process Church of the Final Judgment, the Four P movement takes its name from the Process' original sigil: a swastika like form composed of four interlocking Ps. The Four P movement was supposedly begun in 1967, and has been connected to a number of ritual killings across the country, including the Son of Sam killings in New York and the Manson Family in California."
777 According to the book "Gematria" by Aliester Crowley, "777" corresponds to the flaming sword wielded by the angel that drove Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden in the Holy Bible.

Black Rose Originally mentioned as a possible song for the third album, it was later revealed to be the title of a magazine Glenn was planning.
Blackacidevil This album title, as pronounced by Glenn Danzig, is apparently a play on words of the phrase "black as a devil."
Cold, Cold Rain This unreleased song from 1990 was featured on the Eerie Von hotline in March 1996.
Come To Silver Glenn originally wrote this song for Johnny Cash. When Johnny didn't use it, Danzig recorded the song and released it on 5 Blackacidevil.

God Don't Like It Intro This 1989 instrumental was based on the post-chorus guitar riff for "It's Coming Down" and the main riff for "Her Black Wings." It was played on the first tour starting in the spring of 1989. The band always played this song after "Cwn Anwnn" (intro music) ended.
